Do you like to use facial cleansing tools or do you prefer to use your hands to wash your face? Either way, there are some facial cleansing tools that are really innovative and unique, which can help you get your skin super clean and fresh! I personally like both methods of facial cleaning, but I tend to trust facial cleansing tools to get my skin cleaner. They seem to do a better job of getting rid of all the oil, dirt and makeup than my fingers alone. If you’re interested in getting to know some awesome facial cleansing tools, take a look at the fab options below!
1 SEPHORA COLLECTION Precision Pore Cleansing Pad
Let’s start with one of the more basic facial cleansing tools, Sephora’s Precision Pore Cleansing Pad. This silicone pad has tiny bristles to thoroughly cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin. There’s a small handle on the back so it’s easy to handle and gently cleanse your face and your pores. If you live near an Asian supermarket or dollar store, you might be able to find a similar product at a lower cost! This one is available at Sephora for $6.
2 Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal
Have you heard of konjac? I grew up eating a type of food made from the root of this plant called yam cake, but it was only recently that I discovered that it makes an amazing cleansing product as well. Using a konjac sponge helps detoxify, cleanse and exfoliate your skin using an all-natural product. Boscia’s konjac sponge contains bamboo charcoal to help remove bacteria that causes blemishes and minimize the appearance of pores. You can get it at Sephora for $18.
3 Clarisonic plus Sonic Skin Cleansing System
Clarisonic is probably the first product that came to mind when you thought about facial cleaning tools. It does a fantastic job at removing oil and impurities. It’s said to remove makeup six times better than other methods, and it cleanses and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores. You can also switch brush heads and use it to polish your body. There’s no reason your body shouldn’t get the same treatment as your face! It's available at Sephora for $225.
4 Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System
If you like the idea of the Clarisonic but don’t have $225 to spare, Olay’s version makes a great alternative for much less dough. This highly rated cleansing brush works well with all skin types to deeply yet gently clean skin, enhance its ability to absorb skin care products and improve texture. Choose from two speeds, one for exfoliating and one for daily cleaning. Find it at Walmart for $21.97.
5 SEPHORA COLLECTION Dynamic Duo Face Brush
Here’s another unique product from Sephora that combines a nylon cleansing brush with silicone bristles to gently cleanse and exfoliate facial skin. Many users report an improvement in the appearance of acne scars, enlarged pores and it leaves skin feeling super soft and smooth. This tool is apparently so popular that it’s frequently out of stock, so if you spot this at your local Sephora, you might want to pick it up! You can get it for $16.
6 Neutrogena Wave Deep Clean 2 Speed Starter Kit + 14 Foaming Pads
Neutrogena’s Wave is another affordable facial cleaning product to consider. This product is similar to how the Clarisonic and Olay cleansing brushes work, with the main differences being that this one has a curved shape for better control and it vibrates instead of having a rotating brush head. This is one of the most affordable products for deep cleaning, exfoliating and improving the texture of skin. It's available at Walmart for $9.97.
7 Shiseido 'the Skincare' Cleansing Massage Brush
Shiseido makes some excellent skin care products and their manual cleansing brush also received rave reviews from users. Use it to deep clean your skin while giving it a nice massage treatment to make your daily skin care routine a little more pleasurable! A few things to keep in mind if you decide to try this product are to not apply too much pressure when cleansing until you get used to using it, be aware that the handle is a bit slippery when wet and it works best with a foam cleanser. Find it at Nordstrom for $25.
